The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.

IT’S ALIVE! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ s classic comedy movie masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (“that’s Fronkensteen”) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a new corpse to life. Together with his sidekick Igor (“that’s Eye-gore”), his curvaceous lab assistant Inga, and in spite of his incredibly self-involved madcap fiancé Elizabeth, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein succeeds in creating a new monster—but not without scary and quite often hilarious complications.
